Re: House 5x05 "Lucky Thirteen" - Discussion and Spoilers

Cuddy wanting a child was first brought up in Season 2; I can't remember if it was again in Seasons 3 or 4.

Good episode. I liked that the lesbian angle wasn't just some cheap titillation but actually had dramatic impact. The Foreman/Chase conversation brought back fond memories of when they were working together on House's team. And it was funny! Also funny was Wilson and House; he really is back.

Now... sit back and wait to see who adds "Another life saved by girl-on-girl action" to their sig first.

And there's that last clip where it looked like House and Cuddy was about to kiss.

Re: House 5x05 "Lucky Thirteen" - Discussion and Spoilers

My favorite line of the night came when House and Foreman were heading into 13's apartment, and Foreman is having a rough time trying to pick the lock:

House: 'You're a disgrace to your stereotype.'

Unfortunately I didn't get to watch tonight because of a student debate . I hope it comes up on FOX.COM soon.

Re: House 5x05 "Lucky Thirteen" - Discussion and Spoilers

Good episode, though it left me feeling rather sad. I also liked the near-development for 13 (it's interesting that they note that her disease is progressing faster rather than slower).

The interaction between Foreman / 13 was also interesting to watch. I almost felt them starting to bond a bit.

I like Lucas, though I"m glad he's not regular enough to be in every week. The show's cast already feels too large to give everyone ample screen time, given the nature of the show. I'd like to see more Kutner development in the near future, come to think of it.

^ Surely it's Kutner's turn in the next 2 or 3 episodes?

This one was excellent. I sometimes wonder if there will be ever an episode of House that isn't at least great.

I got a kick out of the lead-in to that, where Foreman has momentarily triumphed over House when the PI didn't dig up anything... and then House gets back with the "boring" comment just as the elevator doors close.

Now... sit back and wait to see who adds "Another life saved by girl-on-girl action" to their sig first.

Cuddy adopting a child doesn't surprise me all that much, as the signs have been there. We've seen all kinds of comments from House about her wanting a child. I wonder if her adoption will be "fast-tracked" as television adoptions nearly always are. Or will it even come off? Hard to tell from that teaser.

preview for next weeks episode has Cuddy bring in the mother of her future child, who has complications

Re: House 5x05 "Lucky Thirteen" - Discussion and Spoilers

Really enjoyed this episode. I wasn't sold on 13 last season--I thought Amber was much more interesting and should have been the pick--but I'm really warming to her this season. I'm intrigued by the Huntington's angle, and think it's kind of a risky move to have her grappling with it.

I felt so bad for her when she finally opened up and let herself get close to the girl, only to find out in the end the other woman wasn't in the same boat she was in.

The House/Wilson stuff was excellent. They're going to be side by side at a nursing home together one day in matching rocking chairs, still arguing.

Re: House 5x05 "Lucky Thirteen" - Discussion and Spoilers

Wilson's being "back" by playing jokes on House was great.

And there were some nice, tender, moments between POTW and Thirteen, like when Thirteen curled up in bed with POTW.

Yup, they make a wonderful Odd Couple. Felix and Oscar would approve.
